Are you making your own hardscrabble slog through this absurd world?

We want to know about it.


We’re interested in writing and visual art that spans the worlds of queer culture, marginalized communities, politics and culture. We’re

Are you an engineer struggling to succeed in a sexist environment? A trans cosplayer who’s found your perfect nerd community? A teacher with lupus who constantly questions how much to divulge about your disability? We’re interested in the margins, in questions of alienation and community building, but it doesn’t stop there. Tell us about your activism, your healing moments, your isolation and danger.

 

 

You have opinions about what’s going on in the news and in your community and we’re interested in what you have to say. We want to be a platform for your queer lens on your world.

Send us your short stories, poetry, satire, comics, illustrations, and photo essays. Fiction, nonfiction, that poem you wrote for the woman you could hardly see there were so many stars in your eyes, but you still never sent it? Fill our inboxes with them. Classic, satirical, single panel illustrations, photography based travelogues of queers with disabilities - we want it all.

We are an explicitly queer website, and we have a preference for work created by queer writers and artists.
